    Hi,
    I'm Flo from Germany. I have found much useful information on this forum in the past years and almost all questions were answered by old posts.
    I working on a 1950 Ford Shoebox since a few years, plan is to make it a full custom.
    In the meantime, a 1950 Merc 4-door came around... still stock but almost finished. ;)

    regards,
    Flo

    Hello Flo,
    I‘ve got also a 49/50 Shoebox here for years. But I haven‘t managed to work on it because of too many other projects.
    I‘m living north of Hamburg.
    Gruß miguel

    Hi Miguel,
    good to know other Shoebox owners in Germany! :)
    My Shoebox is on "stand-by" since 1,5 years as I wanted to complete the Merc first -which took longer than expected (as usual)...

    Thanks! I haven't expected that many feedback! :)
    - Interesting, that you guys have family/relatives in Germany. Cologne is worth a visit -after COVID. ;)

    @Nitroholic: cool Tudor!

    Hello, Flo. Welcome to this forum. I have been reading posts and various threads on this forum for a long time because I really like people who visit this forum. The other day I found out how to change the pads on my 1950 Ford myself. Before that, I couldn't find information or videos anywhere. And since I currently live in Austria, I had no choice but to travel around it by train (I usually do this once every half a year). And it's good that I could find a website with an accurate train schedule -- oebbfahrplan.com; otherwise, I would have spent a lot of time waiting.
